Dustin Keller will miss Jets practice Thursday due to a lingering hamstring injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dustin Keller will sit out New York Jets practice Thursday, head coach Rex Ryan told media. Keller has been hampered by a hamstring injury since preseason, and has appeared in just one--the season opener--this season. He has one reception for seven yards.

Fantasy Impact: There is still no official word yet on Keller's status for Week 5 against the Houston Texans, but at this point you should probably bet against the tight end making a return for the Jets. He would be a risky fantasy play anyway factoring in the tough matchup, his lack of playing time, and the Jets' massive offensive struggles lately. Keller could develop into a low-end start by year's end, but he isn't worth sacrificing a spot on your fantasy roster at this point.
